About This Game

Step into the shoes of a game-loving teen, sent to a harsh correctional institute by Principal Yang for your supposed internet addiction. Inspired by a real-life figure, Dr. Yang, a controversial psychiatrist who advocated for electrotherapy to "cure" troubled teens. You will navigate a branching narrative and make choices that impact your fate.

Unravel the truth behind the institute, disguise yourself, protect your friends, and terminate this notorious real-life event. But watch out, as the villain of the story still holds power in the real world. Will you triumph against the odds?

The complete game is comprised of two parts: 'Part I: Gratitude' and 'Part II: Fight'.


This game offers you thousands of storylines and multiple endings, allowing you to do what is right and just within the game. In this game, you will experience unique gameplay elements rarely seen in FMV games, such as QTE (Quick Time Events), scene exploration, clue gathering, deduction, puzzle-solving, and real-time surveillance monitoring. You will be granted more freedom to imbue your story with personal significance.

About us

We are ALT Lab, a dedicated team focused on creating interactive narrative games. We firmly believe in the unyielding power of stories to touch and change lives, and we aspire to carve out our generation's unique story through a diverse array of captivating media formats.

A little more to say

If there's a story that embodies the frustration that has been locked in the hearts of our generation of gamers, it's the one we're about to tell. Reality is often more fantastical than fiction. In the early stages, we conducted extensive research and interviews with various parties, including internet addiction schools and academies, and the staggering absurdity of reality left us in awe. We found that much of it stems from the malice of unscrupulous institutions, misunderstandings from parents and society, and our own inability to express ourselves when we were young. We hope that our game can foster greater mutual understanding.

After more than two years of development and overcoming numerous challenges, we completed filming in various locations during the pandemic and went through multiple rounds of game polishing. We are acutely aware of the sensitive nature of this subject matter and have been relentless in our pursuit of staying true to our original intent. We are honored to bring this game to life. May all parents and children be understood, and treated with kindness and gentleness.
